The Eagles could add picks by being creative in Round 2.
The Philadelphia Eagles may not be willing to part with their second-round selection in the 2022 NFL Draft. Who knows though? If they find a trade partner that’s looking to move up, they could slide back and still add quality players to bring into the nest.
Following a ten-win season in 2017, the Atlanta Falcons saw their dreams of a Super Bowl end with a loss at Lincoln Financial Field during the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Their opponent was an Eagles squad that was headed towards their first Super Bowl victory.
They haven’t been able to win more than seven games in the four seasons that have followed. Geesh… And, you thought the Eagles were having a hard time.
The Falcons currently have nine draft choices, but with needs at EDGE, wideout, quarterback, safety, and linebacker, they could be looking to move up several spots in Round 2 simply by giving up a third-rounder in 2023. Philly gives them a fifth-rounder here to sweeten the pot.
The last time the Denver Broncos felt like they were a franchise quarterback away from Super Bowl glory, they added Peyton Manning, and that decision worked out fairly well. This time around, they went all-in on Russell Wilson, but don’t look now. They have to play six games versus the AFC West, and the L.A. Chargers, Kansas City Chiefs, and Las Vegas Raiders might give them issues.
Denver must continue this aggressive mindset of roster-building, and they do so by trading up 13 spots in Round 2 to satisfy their needs at EDGE, cornerback, linebacker, or safety. Philly gets a third-rounder out of the deal (the 96th-overall selection) by giving up their seventh-rounder.
